Floral Blossoms and Zig Zag Take 2

Hello!  Yay the weekend is here!  :>  And it's the start to our spring break!  :>  I think this is the first year in a long time that the weather is actually springish during spring break!  :>  Hope your having a great weekend!  Last night I went out with a few friends for pizza and some girl time, it was much appreciated!  :>  It was also last minute and gotta thank my hubby for changing his plans and stayed home with the kids so I could go out!  Today I am working a wreath order, wait till you see it the colors are lovely!  Ariel went to a birthday party for a friend and other than that I think we will lay low today!

Today I have another card to share using the Floral Blossoms and Zig Zag set.  I made this one after my last one you can see it here if you missed it!  I loved my last card but I love this one too!  Can't get enough of this flower stamp I have another two card ideas still!


I am entering this card into the current Lily Pad challenge of Flowers!  And this month's Hero Arts contest one of which is fabulous flowers:



I stamped the zig zag background by Hero Arts with pumice stone distress ink by ranger onto white cardstock but inked the stamp with versamark first to give the ink a more crisp impression.  Stamped the floral blossom also by HA in moss green pigment ink by colorbox, and in a new ink color I picked up Turquoise gem by versamagic.  Cut them out and adhered them, the blue flowers with foam squares.  Made a banner out of grey cardstock and white embossed the sentiment from the set Good Friend by HA.  Added some bling, I am loving bling right now by the way it adds so much!  I was going to do these flowers in pink again but I am so glad I went with the blue!

I wanted to share that one o fmy cards was featured on the Aussie Scrap Source blog!  You can see it here

Happy to share that Ariel is feeling better!  She did go to school on Wednesday but when Chad picked her up the teacher said she wasn't even 50% there!  Oppps!  She spent that evening laying on the couch and we watch Tangled as a family.  She stayed home again on Thursday.  She did go to school on Friday because they were having a garage sale!  Kids bring in toys, candy and such and have a garage sale to practice using money!  Everything has to 25 cents or less!  I made chocolate covered marshmallow pops for her to sell!  I stayed and volunteered too, what a blast!  Ariel bought some really great stuff and I picked up a bunch of cars and books for Carter, he was soo happy!  I took her home after lunch since it was early dismissal and they had gym after lunch and she was starting to crash!  What a sickness pretty much a whole week!  She is usually so healthy so I really can't complain.  But I am so happy that is over!  I think with being home so much this week we may have to be out and about a lot over spring break!  :>

I did want to share something so cute Carter's new way of calling us when he is in distress is "A little help please?"  Sooooo sweet to hear his little voice staying it!  He's also singing randomly and I looooove it! :>

Well I am off gotta get dinner in the slowcooker tonight I am trying a new recipe, Teriyaki chicken!  And I gotta get busy making some felt flowers!

Beautiful Anita. Funny thing is I was seriously thinking of using that distress ink to stamp the zigzag...thanks for the tip about inking with Versamark first. I'll try it. Glad Ariel is feeling better so you can enjoy Spring Break,
